Government came with an clarification on the O.M. of even No. dated 23rd September, 2008 which says that the travel entitlements while on LTC and official tour/transfer will be the same but no daily allowance shall be admissible for travel on LTC. Subsequently, the Ministry of Finance had stipulated that in the case of travel on LTC for those entitled to travel by air, only the cheapest economy fare ticket will be allowed,irrespective of their entitlements on tour.
The government has now been decided to restore the travel entitlements for LTC . The Ministry of Civil Aviation may bring out a scheme on the lines of LTC 80 for travel by business class. The officers and their families may chose to travel on LTC by any airline provided the fare does not exceed the fares offered by NACIL (Air India) under their new LTC scheme or business class.
